When I was a judge at a local fair, this soup recipe received my highest score. Of all the recipes I tasted that day, it was the only one I went home with and has been a winner ever since. —Kathy Herink, Gladbrook, Iowa


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4 celery ribs, chopped
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 package (6-3/4 ounces) quick-cooking long grain and wild rice mix
  • 5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled


  1. In a Dutch oven, cook beef, celery and onions over medium heat until beef is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, breaking up beef into crumbles; drain.
  2. Stir in water, broth, soup, rice mix and contents of the seasoning packet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 5 minutes or until heated through. Top servings with bacon.
